Hey Kokomo -- I rather like the "1965 Pewter Tiki Mug / Bowl" you have up right now, only I'm a little confused. What do you mean by "glazed in pewter"? I presumed that pewter was a metal alloy, not a glaze. And what's "casted"? Is it like "cast", only somehow better? Just wondering.

I really would like to hear about the background of your recasts, it sounds like an interesting process. Do you cast them yourself, or does someone else do them for you? And can you tell us a little about Johnny Sens?

-- Robert



The mug / bowl is made from the ceramic mold produced by duncan in the 1965. I do make these myself. The color is antique pewter. When fired it looks like it has a metallic finish like the Golden Bronze and the Smokey Silver. No metal alloys. Just a color that looks like metal. Same as Boskos Gun Metal Glaze he uses.

Now, about Johnny Sens. I do know a couple of things about the guy. I know he made several different tiki molds and have seen a couple of others on ebay before, i.e....Almans in Ocean Springs has been on 3 or 4 times. Now what I say is what I heard about the guy. He did all these Tiki Molds and supplied the bars along the Gulf Coast. He also sold his molds later. He was busted several times for producing copy cat molds of some Sears and Robuck Cookie Jars and etc... I hear he spent a couple of years in jail for his actions. Dont quote me on that it could be rumor.

As unbelievable as it may seem, there where NO bids on this piece of...hmm, artwork the first go-around. So, I think after reading the comments here the "artist" re-worked the picture to clarify some of our concerns and is generously donating the proceeds to our friend Kokomo's ever hungry kids.

Hey Kokomo I believe you should be able to collect since eBay is contractual (that's my $5 legal word). Now by my calculations, with the current bid at .51 you should get about .50 in proceeds after taking out for the sheet of paper and whatever it was painted with. Pretty cool!

I also just realized that my boy-girl scenario is incorrect, this picture is titled "Transvestite Tikis in Love" I feel like a knuckle-head for NOT picking up on that earlier. I just didn't notice the adams apple. So I guess the Ho-Moai-Sexual is correct.

I think we should try to influence more art auctions by posting in this board... if enough of us commented that we'd really like to see a portrait of Trader Vic in a negligee, it just might appear.

I think it's great what they did with this auction, it shows you guys can't talk behind peoples backs anymore. It's great they can make fun of you guys now. I think this is so funny, a smack right back in your guys face.

I would not consider it a smack in the face. I consider this good fun. Obviously if we did not want anyone to know about our comments, we damn sure wouldnt say anything about the items in these posts. I think that the artist can sit back now and think about crap that they put up on ebay as a tribute to someone. I now feel like Mad-Tiki is the artist of this picture, or he/she is the one who posted it on ebay. I know one thing though, I am getting the proceeds to this baby and Mad-Tiki is not. Maybe I am feeling a little jealousy in the air! When was the last time some one dedicated anything, being something nice, or in this case, crap, to you Mad-Tiki? NEVER! (EvIL LaUGh now) HA HA HA HA HA

Hey KokomoTikiBar&Grill how do you know no ones has ever dedicated anything to me, you don't. Yeah it's good fun to to make fun of people when they don't know they are being made fun of, your a real big man. This whole thing of making fun of people is crap, not all who sell on ebay knows about this site. So how would any of them know you guys are making fun of them, they don't. But if they did find out they would just think it's just some dumb fat guys with nothing else to do all day but sit behind there computers and make fun of people, huh so true. And no there is no jealousy in the air here, don't hold your breath on getting any proceeds. So yes (EvIl WiLl LaUgH Now) HA HA HA HA HA

You must have a very short penis! Your so angry! Every post I have seen by you is some kind of ranting and raving about how your tired of all the fussing and being mean! BOO HOO HOO! I am really starting to feel bad for you! You are a sad case. Most everything in this post is about humor, other than your lack on intelligence to see that. Sad, Sad & did I mention Sad.

Oh, and by your signature picture, I can really tell now that you are the artist of that tribute painting. And look how SAD the Moai looks. Did I mention SAD!

Mad-Tiki,

When an artist posts a work on eBay, they are making that work public, thus opening themselves up for any criticism, praise, or good natured ribbing that anyone who views it may choose to express, in any forum they choose.

Tell me, when you discuss a movie that you don't like, do you make sure the writer, director, producer, editors, and actors are all present to respond to your criticisms?

Perhaps you should buy yourself a
Tiki Squeezie and work off some of that anger!



-Mike

I just changed my email delivery options so I will no longer be receiving the Collecting Tiki forum messages. I never heard such whining and bickering! If anyone has any useful information (like when the new full-size suffering bastard tiki farm repros are coming out) please post to the regular forum, not the Collecting Tiki forum. Thanks!
